Precatus est Moyses in conspectu Domini Dei sui, et dixit. Precatus est Moyses in conspectu Domini Dei sui, et dixit: Quare, Domine, irasceris in populo tuo? Parce iræ animæ tuæ: memento Abraham, Isaac et Iacob, quibus iurasti dare terram fluentem lac et mel. Et placatus factus est Dominus de malignitate, quam dixit facere populo suo.

Preface II of Sundays in Ordinary Time: [The mystery of salvation]

It is truly right and just, our duty and our salvation,
always and everywhere to give you thanks,
Lord, holy Father, almighty and eternal God,
through Christ our Lord.

For out of compassion for the waywardness that is ours,
he humbled himself and was born of the Virgin;
by the passion of the Cross he freed us from unending death,
and by rising from the dead he gave us eternal life.

And so, with Angels and Archangels,
with Thrones and Dominions,
and with all the hosts and Powers of heaven,
we sing the hymn of your glory,
as without end we acclaim:

Holy, Holy, Holy Lord God of hosts…

Communion Antiphon:

You have given us, O Lord, bread from heaven,
endowed with all delights and sweetness in every taste. Wisdom 16:20 [Roman Missal]

— or —

I am the bread of life, says the Lord;
whoever comes to me will not hunger
and whoever believes in me will not thirst. John 6:35 [Roman Missal]

Panem de cælo dedisti nobis, Domine, habentem omne delectamentum, et omnem saporem suavitatis. Wis 16:20 [Graduale Romanum, p.319]

Prayer after Communion:

Ac- company with constant protection, O Lord,
those you renew with these heavenly gifts;

and, in your never-failing care for them,
make them worthy of eter- nal re- demption.

Through Christ our Lord. A-men.

Solemn Blessing: [14. Ordinary Time VI]

May God bless you with every heavenly blessing,
make you always holy and pure in his sight,
pour out in abundance upon you the riches of his glory,
and teach you with the words of truth;
may he instruct you in the Gospel of salvation,
and ever endow you with fraternal charity.
Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

And may the blessing of almighty God,
the Father, and the Son, + and the Holy Spirit,
come down on you and remain with you for ever.
Amen.
